PreGED students were recently celebrated for completing the PreGED program at the International College of the Cayman Islands (ICCI).

Workforce Opportunities & Residency Cayman (WORC) has been sponsoring students since 2022 to take the 16-week course providing the basics in Math, Science, Social Studies, and Reasoning Through Language Arts (English).

Ms. Kimone Chambers, Acting Manager, National Training and Development Unit from WORC, along with the team at ICCI, established the Pre-GED programme in 2022. She congratulated the students for their hard work and determination. “The PreGED program provides them with the foundation needed to enroll in the GED programme, which is the next step toward passing the exams. The students can sit the four modules and pass the exams to earn their high school diploma equivalency at the end of the GED Programme,” Ms. Chambers added, “It is vital that our Caymanian population can access and participate in these programmes for free to enhance their lives and gain the necessary knowledge and skills needed in the workplace.”

President of ICCI, Dr. Byron Coon said: “Behind every triumphant student passing the PreGED stands a legion of unsung heroes – the sponsor and instructor who believe in the power of education to transform lives. I am so thankful for the support of WORC represented by Kimone Chambers and Sheena Webster for partnering with ICCI to make this program available to so many deserving students.  Ms. Kimberley Wood is the Coordinator and Instructor of the PreGED programme.  She works tirelessly to develop and teach the curriculum. WORC and Ms. Wood’s unwavering support has paved the way for countless success stories, illuminating futures and igniting dreams. Congratulations to this cohort of students and ICCI’s continuous excitement over the boundless potential unleashed through the PreGED programme.”

PreGED courses are offered three times each year in the Fall (September to December), Winter (January to April) and Summer (May to August) at ICCI. Classes are held Tuesday through Thursday from 1:30-4:45.

Interested persons should apply directly at WORC.
